When booking an officer for off duty work you may ask, what types of events can their services cover? Are they limited in what they can do when working off-duty? Off-duty officers can assist the community by providing security, crowd control, uniformed law-enforcement presence, traffic control for private functions, social events, store sales events, parades, civic celebrations, job safety, construction sites and much more.
Do they have the authority to act as an on-duty officer?
Police officers usually carry their police powers 24 hours a day whether they are on the job or not. This includes the power to arrest and use force if necessary while working off-duty private security jobs. Off-duty jobs allow officers to work in full uniform and carry their department issued weapons.
Police officers benefit private security jobs because they carry their training and police power wherever they go. Many police departments encourage their cops to offer their services outside of official patrol.
There are many benefits when hiring an off-duty police officer to work in a security capacity. Not only will you feel the peace of mind, but so will your customers and patrons.
